A thread to suggest new famous R1a individuals. My own first suggestion is the outlaw Jesse James. A descendant of his grandfather reverend John Martin James (1775-1827) has tested R1a on the James Y-DNA project


These two I have posted before, but I will mention them here again for the sake of order:

Alexander Pushkin, according to the R1a page of poreklo.rs

Ben Carson (American surgeon and politician), according to the book "Finding Your Roots" (2014) p. 81-2.

Thanks! I have added them to the list of famous R1a. I checked Jesse James's haplotype in Nevgen and it is R1a-Y2395>Z284>L448>CTS4179>YP386.

Great! By the way, I think Carson is totally the Max von Sydow type.
